    I hope IU can get Garcia. That’d be quite a 2020 class

    Maybe a new Hoosier?

    Proud dad am I: My high school senior in South Florida was just accepted to IU. Now we need a Jacobs School acceptance and a classical voice scholly. #hopefuldadwhowantsanexcusetobeinbloomington

    Your right were not going to be fine. We will probably not get another recruit and eventually have to give up basketball forever.

    Food For Thought

    I love digging up obscure facts - especially on a dull night. Here goes. Total starts during IU career: Smith (46), Durham (44), Phinisee (29), Green (24), Davis (22), Brunk (18). Franklin (5), Jackson-Davis (5). Of course Brunk includes his time at Butler. Anyone else surprised that in four years Green has only started 24 games? Last night's result Texas A& M (56) - Troy (52). What? Did anyone see that coming? ELEVEN schools in the Big Ten have a lower 3-point percentage than Indiana! I know still early but still. The Big Tens record presently is 39-14. Cup Cake season, but how did we manage to lose 14 times? 56 teams are still undefeated - including the Hoosiers.

    If Marquette was bringing back an ex player they probably should of tried and brought back Henry Ellenson. The power forward one and done that played for Woj that left on bad terms and other schools use against them as negative recruiting instead of a former super star guard that played at Marquette 3 coaches ago. In the end if he goes to Marquette it won’t be because of a Wade visit it will be because that’s where he wanted to go Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Indy Star - Stefan Krajisnik BLOOMINGTON – Chants of “Bobby” and “Thank you, coach” echoed throughout The Bluebird on Saturday as former Indiana basketball coach Bob Knight made a surprise appearance. "Hoosier Hysterics" — a podcast dedicated to Indiana men’s basketball — was hosting a live event when the former coach made an unexpected arrival to close out the afternoon. Knight took the stage to a loud roar and a plethora of cellphones recording the moment. It is rare for him to make public appearances in Bloomington, and on Indiana’s campus, as the emotions around his firing continue to linger nearly 20 years later. Knight made an appearance at an Indiana baseball game last spring, but there have not been many signs of him making a return to Assembly Hall. However, he showed some intention to return while at The Bluebird. “Let’s go tomorrow,” Knight said in response to a fan asking when he’ll be returning to the arena. There is no men’s basketball game scheduled for Sunday, but there is a women’s game slated. While he showed signs of being open to an Assembly Hall return, most of his time on stage was a showcase of personality. The mystery surrounding Bob Knight: 'People just want to know about him' Knight did not refrain from cursing and made jokes about former players that were in attendance not knowing how to play defense. “You’ve gotta excuse my language right now,” Knight said. “Because when I was coaching that’s all I talked about.” With numerous former players in attendance, Knight showed gratitude toward them and toward the fans for how he was treated during his 29 seasons as Hoosiers coach. “I think they knew that the fans here really wanted to see good basketball, and they gave it to them,” he said while choking up. Signs of Knight’s competitiveness showed as well. As he thanked former players, he made sure to note the success the program had in his time. “This was a great place to coach, and it was an opportunity to coach a lot of great kids,” Knight said. “And more important than that, we just about beat everybody’s @$$.” And he made sure to show his flair for rivalry never left either. “Is that son of a (expletive) from Purdue over there,” Knight said. Knight was persistent to stay on stage as long as possible, and numerous times as the event began to wrap up, he remained with the microphone in hand. After the crowd joined country singer Clayton Anderson in performing the Indiana fight song for Knight, he eventually made his way off the stage. But it came as chants of “Bobby” filled the air again, and the man so many referred to as “The General” gave the crowd a final salute.

    (2020) PF/C - Dawson Garcia to Marquette

    Tijan Jobe was NOT a project. He came to IU every bit the player he was when he left.

    A year from today I will be taking my wife to Maui to celebrate 15 years of marriage. My gift to her is taking her to Hawaii, her gift to me is watching the Hoosiers in the Maui classic.

    Yes, but in all fairness, SOMEBODY has to be the most negative person you've ever met.

    I'll shed no tears for Izzo and the Spartans. Tom Izzo announces transfer Joey Hauser has been denied his appeal by the NCAA.

    He's gonna have to go back further than 2013 for the proper information -- there was no NCAA champion that season!

    OF you haven’t seen him play if you feel that way. He can defend 3-5. He can play 3-5. That means at his 6’11” size he has proven he can play against top talent both inside and out. I am not distraught we didn’t get him, but to minimize the kid is wrong. He very much would have helped and played 25+ out the gate. He is a really good player that would have been protected to not be exposed as a skinny 5. He can very well play the 3 and 4. Comparing Luke Brown and Dawson Garcia is just a horrible comparison. There isn’t one, even artificially. There is a very distinct reason Archie Miller is not going after Luke Brown. It’s not he is stringing him along. He is not writing, texting, calling, watching, or even glancing at box scores to see how he is doing. Luke Brown is not a fit for what Indiana University is doing at both ends of the floor. Dawson Garcia is exactly what CAM is looking for. It’s a miss. No more or less. He has far more hits than misses, but let’s not minimize someone that would have helped us.
